Meet The Women Who Financially Support Their Husbands

"It easily could have been any one of you."

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who became a household name earlier this year when she spoke in front of Congress about access to affordable birth control — and was subsequently called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh — spoke at the Democratic National Convention last night, focusing on the ways in which a Romney administration would have a negative impact on the lives of women. Watch it above!

Nun Talks Back

While trying to promote peace and justice throughout the United States, a Catholic social justice group called Nuns On The Bus have been threatened with a “pistol whipping.” On a radio show last week, host Jan Mickelson talked about the nuns recent protest of a conservative budget plan and asked his guest Rep. Tom Latham (R-IA)  if he has “any power to pull the nuns on the bus over and pistol whip them.”

[W]hat I’ve learned [after being called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh on his show] has less to do with Mr. Limbaugh specifically and more to do with a part of our population that has this view. Because frankly, you don’t go on national radio and talk for several days about something that no one wants to hear. There’s an audience for this type of sexist vitriol. There is real hate and sexism within our society that we have to do something about.

– Here, here, Sandra Fluke! The Georgetown University law student — who was famously called a “slut” and “prostitute” on-air by Rush Limbaugh after she testified before House Democrats about the limited coverage for birth control at her school — was interviewed this week in The New York Times Magazine. Even though I found Fluke’s comments about erotica/pornography ignorant and annoying — Interviewer: “What does feminist porn look like?” Fluke: “I’ll let you know when I find any.” — she was otherwise super articulate and smart, especially when discussing the difference between free speech and slander. I hope Sandra Fluke runs for office someday and unseats some douchebag Rick Santorum acolyte. [NY Times Magazine]

Rush Blasts "Feminazi" Nuns

During his (frighteningly) popular radio talk show on June 13, Rush Limbaugh didn’t hesitate to add Catholic nuns to his oh-so-scary list of “feminazis.” Limbaugh voiced his concern over the Vatican’s “doctrinal assessment” of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), where the Vatican had determined the LCWR to have ”serious doctrinal problems” because they are promoting “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” The LCWR has spurred much reaction throughout the United States, including Nun Justice rallies, a nine-state bus tour, and a Change.org petition.

Limbaugh attacked the nuns for challenging the American bishops on the Affordable Care Act, which would improve access to affordable health coverage for everyone:

“Yeah, but what are the nuns doing? Do you know what the nuns are doing? The nuns have gone feminazi on everybody. This small group of nuns in the Catholic Church is going feminist, and the Vatican is obviously–well, a figure of speech, slapping them down. And the Vatican is trying to tamp it down and say, ‘No, no, no, that doesn’t happen. There’s no such thing as a feminist nun.’”

God bless Gloria Allred: the attorney has fired off a letter to the Palm Beach County Attorney’s Office to notify them that their most noxious resident, Rush Limbaugh, broke the law. (Again.) It turns out Florida has an obscure defamation statue classifying the “false and malicious questioning of a woman’s chastity” as a misdemeanor. Which, of course, is exactly with Limbaugh did when he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his nationally syndicated radio recorded in Florida. 

Let’s be real: Florida should repeal such a sexist law. I mean, really, “a woman’s chastity”? But I’m not going to be pretend I would be tickled if Rush Limbaugh did get in trubs for defamation. [Huffington Post]
